About the program

This is the very latest TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design & Development. It is intended for for experienced vocational training designers and those who are responsible for the process of developing training – from understanding needs, designing solutions and delivering best practice.

The Diploma of Training Design & Development (TAE50216) along with the Diploma of Vocational Education and Training (TAE50116) is becoming increasingly necessary to separate the truly dedicated professional from the seemingly endless number of people who hold the Certificate IV in Training & Assessment.

Experienced vocational training developers and instructional designers who are responsible for:

  • Analysing training needs, and
  • Designing training solutions and products to meet workplace capability requirements, and evaluating the effectiveness of training programs.

They may have a role in providing guidance and advice to trainers and assessors, promoting innovative practices, e.g. e-learning, and in researching and incorporating best practice in training and assessment into training programs and products.

We offer the TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design & Development program through a blended pathway of RPL and Coursework Assessment.  Experience tells us that students seeking this Diploma possess a range of relevant experience and qualifications.

Because no two people are the same, making you jump through the same hoops as everyone else just doesn’t make sense.

That’s why our process often begins with a conversation.

Diploma, VET and TDD Process Infographic

We allow 12 months for our Diploma program, although experience tells us that experienced professionals usually take 3-6 months to complete a program of blended RPL/Coursework Assessment.

No conversation about fees can be separated from conversation about service.  If you missed the following graphic from our Home Page then it shows the level of service we offer.

We think it is worth considering when thinking about fees.

We have an upfront and deferred payment option.

Upfront: The full fee for the TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design & Development  program is $2100, however we require only an upfront payment of $1500, with a balance of $600 payable in 60 days or when you are ready to graduate (whichever is earlier).

Payment Plan: Ten monthly payments of $240 each. This is a total of $2,400.00.

This option requires the use of our PayWay Direct Debit facility, and your enrolment will commence following receipt of the first payment.

Single Unit Studies: For students seeking less than the full qualification, individual units are available at a fee of $300 each.

Extensions are available for a fee of $200 per month, or $500 for 6 months.

You may select your preferred payment option on the Enrolment Form.

Credit Transfer

These full qualification fees include up to 2 units via credit transfer.  If you are able to gain more than 2 units via credit transfer, then units 3 onwards are rebated at $150 per unit.  In the case of upfront payment, the rebated amount is deducted from the second payment.  In the case of payment plan, the rebated amount is deducted from the final payments.

Hidden Costs?

If your program requires the textbook, Professional Training & Assessment, then you may need to purchase this.  This will be determined once the Personal Learning Plan process has been completed.

It’s one thing to think about taking the next step to secure your future. It is another to actually go and do it.

When you are ready to take control of the direction your life takes, then we invite you to join us.

Our enrolment process involves four steps, as shown below.
